Coconut Pecan Chocolate Chunk Bars

Post by Margaret.

If a picture is worth a 1000 words I don’t need to say anything else!!!

What you see is one of Malgieri’s bar cookies in the cookie section of the Modern Baker.

The bars start off with a buttery shortbread crust….

….which is gently pressed into a 9″ x 13″ pan.

While the dough is baking you mix together your brown sugar, eggs, sugar, coconut, pecans, and chocolate pieces.  {Malgieri calls for 12 ounces of cut chocolate, but I used chocolate chips.}This mix is spread over the baked but not cooled crust…

…and baked for about 20 – 25 minutes until the filling is set. {Have to say, mine never did ‘set’ until if chilled them.}  The ‘slab’ is then cut into 2″ squares – which is all you need because they are SOrich, and devoured!!

I know several of the Modern Challenge Bakers have already made these so check them out and visit The Modern Baker Challenge – Cookies.

This recipe is on page 277 of Malgieri’s the Modern Baker.
